Spotted an Amtrak F40PHR in Seattle
Author: F40PHR231

While surfing the Birds-Eye View of Seattle via Microsoft, I did a double take and zoomed in on what I thought was a F40PHR in Seattle King St Station! I knew it had to be recent as in the last couple years due to the mainline relocation project as evidenced in the photos, and remembered the #241 was in the Seattle area before it left for Iowa. Sure enough, the side appears to say FerroMex like what 241 had. The 241 is now #678 and painted up in Rock Island colors for the Hawkeye Express train in Iowa.

This wasn't quite what I expected to find during tonight's browse and "see if I find anything interesting". :)
